    Squad For Next Season

    I don't care how poorly a player has performed throughout the season, there's no justification for telling them they're no longer required via a text message. It's heartless and unprofessional.

    How do you know that, KP?

    POLL - early predictions on McPake

    I like to be optimistic and think he can take us up as Champions, but I'm a little less confident now that Falkirk have snatched Coll Donaldson from right under our noses. I wouldn't be fussed if we go up through the play offs, but as others will no doubt point out, we don't have a great record in those..... πŸ™

    Coll Donaldson

    That's the way I read it, too. I'm sure James McPake would love to have kept him but he`s just in the door. You have to think Falkirk have offered him a good deal with maybe 24 hrs to take it or leave it. A bird in the hand and all that......

    Let the fans pick the manager.......

    I didn't mean to set you off like that, mate. Once I realised the poster was serious, I thought "This is hilarious" and decided to share it here.

    πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ We'd be sacking a manager almost every time we lost a game.

    Let the fans pick the manager.......

    Initially, I was sure the post was a wind up, but then I realised the poster was putting forward a serious suggestion - one which would help to shift more season tickets, apparently. Hmmm πŸ€”
  8. I've shamelessly lifted this striking example of innovative, out of the box thinking, so that the erudite pundits on this forum can evaluate its merits........ "This might be a crazy suggestion but why not try to get the fans onboard and get their input. Why not have a final shortlist of 3 potential managers and allow the fans to vote for our preference? Raith advertised the job vacancy and invited applications. Do we think we are too big a club to go with that approach? For me advertise the job and give the fans the choice. Why not be a little bit different from the norm that way we have no one to blame if it doesn’t work out. Hopefully more season ticket sales meaning more of a budget for better players."
  9. I think some of the players knew and have been blabbing. Say it ain't so, Keyser. πŸ™‚
  10. Much as it pains me to say this, the increased traffic on this forum is leading to a spread of opinions not unlike dotnet. This thread is divided between those who are unhappy with the appointment of McPake and predict another poor season ahead and those who believe we should give him a chance. I wonder which group I should side with? Tough one....πŸ€”
  11. Indeed I will. Happy for the money to go to such a worthy cause. Be buying only Smart Price goods from Asda next week. πŸ™

    Whoever the new manager is, it's fair enough to have doubts or reservations, but let's give him a chance before we start putting the boot in. Of course some managers are better than others, but sometimes the difference can simply be down not only to the quality of the players they bring in, but their character. If he signs a number of honest, diligent professionals, who are prepared to work hard for the team, he's well on the way to success, as long as he's able to use tactics and a formation which plays to their strengths. Bring in a few big headed, know alls and he's going to struggle from the outset. My understanding is that this has been the problem at EEP for several seasons now. When Stevie Crawford was appointed, he told fans at a Supporters Meeting that he'd never been involved with a squad in which so many players had a really poor attitude, either as a player or manager. It might explain why things went so badly wrong for Allan Johnston at the end and for Peter Grant and John Hughes last season. Of course there will be other factors which contributed to a dismal season, but a lack of dressing room harmony in any club is a recipe for disaster.

    That might rule out the Bunnet, then? πŸ€”

    Can we please stop this game of Guess Who? Keyser and I have agreed a charity bet and both of us have decided the beneficiary should be DADSC. He'll be getting nervous if you guys start tipping every man and his dug. πŸ˜ƒ Eta. Keyser only has only backed one horse in this bet. All the others are running for me. I feel like a bookie. πŸ™‚
